Braille Parking

I was out taking a frustration break and enjoying an Aviator’s breakfast (coffee, donut and cigarette); when I hear a car alarm going off. I look across the street and what do I see?

One big ol’ Caddy with one little grey haired old lady looking THROUGH the steering wheel trying to parallel park that monster in a space…

She had bumped the car behind her, she then proceeded to crank the wheel over and pull forward till she hit the car in front of her (again setting of a car alarm), to keep this short, she backs and fills about 10 more times, using the cars in front and in back of her as bumpers till she finally gets in the space.

She gets out (all 4′ 10″ maybe…)and totters across the street, and I tell her good morning and warn her about the parking Nazi that works the area. She just looks up an smiles, “Sonny, if they DO give me a ticket, I’ll just call the Judge and he’ll throw it out, I haven’t paid a parking ticket in this town in 15 years…”

And off she goes… So I run over and put .50 cents in the meter for her, and looked at the front and rear bumpers… This is definitely NOT the first time she has parked using this technique!!!

And I kid you not, there was a pillow in the drivers seat!!!

I didn’t stick around to see her leave, but ya gotta love the little ol’ ladies; she was somebodies Mother (and hopefully NOT the one teaching the kids to drive).

  1. My brothers best friend, (who STILL is his best friend) attempted to teach me to drive a stick shift when I was about 15. Let’s just say the stickshift and I didn’t get along really well and he finally gave up.

    Craig didn’t like to travel much except on his motorcycle, but after a death in his wife’s family he had to FLY to California. . His first flight. To say he was nervous was an UNDERSTATEMENT. so he boards the plane, it’s this old turboprop, makes him more nervous still, sits down, trying to hold it togehter and the lone Flight Attendant makes the announcement “In Command of our Flight is Captain Linda ______”. And poor Craig shouts out “Holy &*#^# . . that’s my best friends kid sister. . I taught her how to drive. . and trust me folks it wasn’t pretty”. . And everyone started laughing really hard. He settled down and after the flight came up and had his picture taken with me. What are the chances of that meeting.
